Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are “on the same path of loneliness and destruction” as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, commentator Kinsey Schofield told Schofield argued the public is “catching on” to the couple’s tendency to perceive any suggestion or criticism as a “slight” against them. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have levelled a series of explosive allegations against the Royal Family since they announced plans to step down as senior working members of the institution.

The To Di For Daily podcast host told the King is unlikely to intervene directly to strip the couple of their titles but would rather “ignore” the pair.

She said: “Harry and Meghan weaponize anything they deem a slight. Anything. Even something so insignificant as reluctantly allowing someone (who is practically a stranger) to borrow your lip gloss.

“I think the King would rather pretend they don’t exist while Harry and Meghan continue to throw three years’ worth of tantrums.

“The public are catching on. Polling suggests people are fed up.”

Schofield added: “The King will focus on the future of the monarchy vs a bunch of whiny quitters.

“Too bad they weren’t given the Duke and Duchess of Windsor titles. They’re on the same path of loneliness and destruction.”

Edward VIII followed his then-lover Wallis Simpson in France after announcing to the world his intention to step down to be “with the woman I love”.

Prince Harry‘s great-grandfather, King George VI, granted his eldest brother the title of Duke of Windsor and allowed him to keep the HRH style.

In a statement following their announcement about stepping down from their working roles, the late Queen said: “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved members of my family.

“I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life.

“I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.”

Her Late Majesty also included the couple in the celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee last summer. And the King is expected to extend an invitation for the Sussexes to attend his coronation in May.
